Your current 235/75r15's are just slightly smaller than a 7.00x15LT. The new tires in question SHOULD fit... The 7.00x15 is narrower than a 235 by quite a bit... an inch and a half to 2 inches, depending on the size rim they are mounted on. The 7.00x15 will be about 0.5 inches to 1 inch taller than the current 235's though.

simple answer, the new tires are narrower, but slightly taller than the current tires.

While they will most likely fit, I would not recommend them. Any tire in that size designation, are usually intended for trailer, commercial, or heavy duty applications. They will NOT ride very well, read:very tough, rough, and choppy. Certainly not something I would recommend if you drive the van regularly or long trips.

If you're concerned about strength, stick with a 235/75/15LT tire (not a regular 235/75R15... look for the LT at the end). They will still by a much heavier duty tire than what you currently have, but ride much better than the 7.00x15.

I wish you luck in your search, but if I can be of further assistance, please let me know. I will be happy to help in any way that I can.
